Blog | Sean Kelly closer than ever to the front in Mugello

Sean Kelly

Hey everyone!

It's race week again and this time around we are in Assen, at the cathedral of speed. It's surprising to see the beautiful weather we've been welcomed to so I'm looking forward to a nice weekend for the 3rd round of the 2018 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup!

Overall I come into the Netherlands with a good feeling and a fresh mind. Although Mugello (on paper) wasn't perfect, behind it there was a lot of positive work and a race to be content about. For sure it was quiet frustrating at first to see myself finishing in eleventh, but looking back and realising how close I was to the podium (just over half a second) is something to be satisfied about. This was my closest ever gap to the victory.

These last couple of weeks I have been training a lot physically and also pushing the limits on the track. I feel I'm still improving myself every time out, which gives me the confidence I need to push for a solid result this weekend.

I want to thank the entire RBRC Staff for their hard work and support, as well as my sponsor Pole Position Travel and my family for always believing in me! Be sure to watch live on Red Bull TV!

Thanks again and see you all soon,
